Well, Christmas has come and gone again, and no doubt everyone’s exhausted. We’ve loved our Christmas series, and as always our Nativity & Carol Service with hog roast was very popular and we had a great evening.

We’ll have a new morning preaching series in the new year and another set of evening meetings planned but I’ll update all of those later, for now we just want to wish you all a very happy new year and we hope to see you in 2016.

Christmas is coming…

Christmas Starts with Christ…the geese are getting fat. The people, on the other hand, are largely getting stressed organising presents and Christmas dinner, decorating trees and houses. Why not get yourself back in the real Christmas spirit with our advent services this year?

As usual, we’ll be building up to our main Christmas event the Sunday before Christmas day. This year it’s the 20th and  entitled ‘What a difference a day makes‘. We’ll have carols, kids forgetting their lines and not knowing where to go or when to go there. To top it all off, we finish with a Hog Roast, mince pies and chocolate log. It’s a great evening.

Here’s our full Advent plan (all at 10:30, except 20th Dec):

22nd Nov Stir it up for Christmas The rights ingredients for a great Christmas
29th Nov Driving Home for Christmas
6th Dec It had to be you Family Service
13th Dec Wise men say
20th Dec 5pm What a difference a day makes Carol Service, followed by hog roast
Christmas Day Dreams can come true

Life on the Frontline

FrontlineOur Sunday evening series, Life on the Frontline starts this Sun, 18th Oct and runs until the last session on 22nd Nov.

The series is video based, and shows us how to live as ‘whole life disciples’ whatever we do, wherever we are and whoever we’re with.

Do join use for a series that promises to help us bring the Good News to those around us without being ‘that guy’.
